How J-Plasma Technology is Changing Plastic Surgery
If you’ve never heard of J-Plasma treatments, you’re not alone. This new procedure is making waves due to its highly effective results in tightening and rejuvenating the skin through nonsurgical methods. This means no incisions, no scarring, and long-lasting results that can be similar to a lift or skin tightening procedure. Here’s what’s new with this game-changing technology.
What is J-Plasma technology?
This new, non-surgical procedure uses electrical technology and helium gas to peel away the outer layer of the skin, which is then treated with plasma to tighten the new layer and stimulate collagen production. It combines the skin rejuvenation of a chemical peel with the skin tightening of a face lift, all with no incisions or downtime. It can be performed with precision around most areas of the body, including the face, jawline, upper arms, thighs, abdomen, and in conjunction with gynecomastia treatment.
What can it treat?
This skin rejuvenation procedure can treat most problems that a chemical peel can— wrinkles, discoloration, age spots, sun damage, scarring, and acne. It can also treat mild skin sagging and excess tissue that is not severe enough to require a surgical procedure. If any of these problems cause your skin to look aged and loose, a J-Plasma treatment can produce dramatic results.
What can I expect from the procedure?
This quick and easy procedure is usually performed in-office with only a local anesthesia at the site being treated. It takes no more than a couple hours, with some peeling and redness for up to a couple weeks afterwards. After the treatment, a new, smooth layer of skin emerges that is tightened and rejuvenated. Most patients require only one treatment, as the age-rewinding results can last for years.
